Heya Well I'm looking into getting a dog sometime soon, and I'm still a little unsure of the breed that is right for me. I want something medium sized, pretty intelligent, able to do either agility or obedience, or some sort of activity, if you know what I mean! I have a dog, a lab x Border Collie, and it is important they get on. The youngest child in the household is 8, bt he is well aware of what is good behaviour around animals and what isn't acceptable. We are a pretty active family, the dog would be walked for around 1 hour each day, perhaps more, aswell as training sessions. Erm... as it's my first time starting from a pup, fairly easy to train. Is this to much to ask for? We've been thinking along the lines of an English Springer Spaniel. I love Border Collies, but I don't think it's a good idea, what with it being my first puppy and all. Any help? Thankyou!
